Join RTL Today for the TEDx Luxembourg education event, featuring Minister of Education Claude Meisch and a host of other speakers in the education sector as they exchange ideas in this semi-virtual chat.

TEDxEducation events give students, parents, teachers and participants in educational communities an opportunity to spark discussion on the future of education, and share those ideas with the global community.

This hybrid event will combine speakers both in person and virtually, with a livestream right here on RTL Today. From the Minister of Education, to entrepreneurs, teachers, and a 13-year-old student, you'll have the opportunity to hear from members of all sides of the education community.

Join us at 5pm on Wednesday 12 May for what promises to be a fascinating event full of educational insights.
